Charles Sweeny of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is almost as good with one-liners as he is with his gun:
Police are searching for a burglar who was shot multiple times. He was caught in the act by a homeowner, who showed no mercy.
The burglar was taken to the hospital on October 12, but now he’s essentially disappeared. Police have already arrested one man for the burglary and now they’re searching for Michael Watts.
The homeowner who shot Watts said it’s a shame that Watts broke into his house looking for gold and left full of lead.
Charles Sweeny has lived in the same home in midtown Tulsa for nearly six decades, so you can only imagine what went through his mind when he noticed things inside weren’t how he left them.
“Mother’s dresser drawer was open, so I knew I had walked in to a burglary. I took care of that problem el pronto mucho fasto,” Sweeny said.
Sweeny said he came face-to-face with the man who broke into his house.
Police say it was Michael Watts.
“I looked up and, six feet away, there he was. I had the pistol in my hand, got my finger on the trigger, flipped off the safety and one second later, I was launching lead,” Sweeny said.
Watts took six bullets but managed to escape out a window, and was then driven to a nearby hospital for treatment. They apparently neglected to handcuff him to the bed, at at some point, he got up and walked out of the hospital.
Sweeny himself seems utterly nonplussed about the incident.
